We have all been there, looking at a recipe only to see the word “heavy cream” in the ingredient list. This word gives me the eeby-jeebies. I do not want the word “heavy” near any of the food I am going to eat. There are alternatives, I promise! Don’t fret if you are not a coconut lover, as I actually do not enjoy coconuts at all but the coconut milk isn’t all bad! Coconut milk does not taste like the sweetened and shredded coconut you most likely are thinking about, so rest assured! You will save yourself SO many calories with this healthier switch, and the food will taste just as good! Check out some yummy recipes below that you can make with coconut milk!
